Thou shall not take problems to bed with you,
for they make very poor bedfellows.

Among many rules formulated under my Enjoyment of Life principle is “Thou shall not bring back home thy work and/or work problems”. Kerja perlu dilakukan hanya di tempat kerja dan dalam waktu kerja. Saya sentiasa sedaya upaya avoid even the slightest breach of my own rules. But sadly, I am now going against them; am at home and browsing through online CLJ, doing some research. Tak suka tau!

But in line with the said Principle, in two days I’ve watched 3 movies dan saya merasa sungguh haloba kerana saya kini mempunyai 6 DVD lanun yang belum (dan wajib) saya tonton. Yabedabedoo!

I’ll share my other stupid rules from time to time (Konon macam best? Ngeh ngeh) But as at now, I’d like to share something I really like, the author of which is sadly unknown. Enjoy and be inspired!

Thou shall not worry,
for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.

Thou shall not be fearful,
for most of the things we fear never come to pass.

Thou shall not cross bridges before you come to them,
for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.

Thou shall face each problem as it comes.
You can only handle one at a time anyway.

Thou shall not take problems to bed with you,
for they make very poor bedfellows.

Thou shall not borrow other people's problems.
They can better care for them than you can.

Thou shall not try to relive yesterday;
for good or ill, it is gone forever.
Concentrate on what is happening in your life
and be happy now!

Thou shall be a good listener,
for only when you listen
do you hear ideas different from your own.
It is hard to learn something new when you are talking,
and some people do know more than you do.

Thou shall not become "bogged down" by frustration,
for 90% of it is rooted in self-pity
and will only interfere with positive action.

Thou shall count thy blessings,
never overlooking the small ones,
for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.
